Educational & Evolutional Psychology

Evolutionary educational psychology is the study of the relation between inherent folk knowledge and abilities and accompanying inferential and attributional biases as these influence academic learning in evolutionarily novel cultural contexts, such as schools and the industrial workplace.

It is a theoretical approach to psychology that attempts to explain useful mental and psychological traits such as memory, perception, or language as adaptations, i.e., as the functional products of natural selection.

Psychologists working in this field believe that most human behavior can be explained by understanding psychological processes; that the behaviors we exhibit today are a result of the evolutionary pressures faced by our ancestors. Individuals displaying such psychological characteristics historically had a benefit in terms of survival and reproduction, leading in turn to the natural selection of these traits within the population as a whole. The basic research they are conducting is providing a new and interesting perspective on why people take the actions they do, and the potential evolutionary psychology reasons behind human behaviour.
